    General Commentnot really. If you play it backwards, eddie is saying:
    "Oh, Peter Townsend, how you saved my life."

    It's really quite clever how he got such a comprehensible bunch of words form both directions of the recording. He loves The Who, and he likes himself some privacy. Clever.

    General Commentnotice the comma? that is commonly used when you write your name with the last name first. it allows you to invert words. without a comma, the phrase would be "To pry" which means to impose on something or someone. Vedder doesn't want people to pry into his life. He put the phrase backwards because if you play the song backwards, there is a private message about his personal musical tastes and how he believes music saved his life.

    General CommentThat's a good explanation, thanks KurdtTBO. A very interesting use of about 15 seconds on the album Vitalogy.
